is not actually presidential, it is just my favorite obama moment. because here is the deal. the presidency itself is weak, which is why americans want presidents themselves to be strong. i just encourage us not to confuse aggressiveness with strength. and that is our show for today, thank you to ken g, robert and chloe for sticking around. also, thank you for joining us, despite my laryngitis, and we'll see you next weekend. coming up next, alex witt. ♪ ♪ [ multiple sounds making melodic tune ] ♪ [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, every innovation, every solution, comes together for a single purpose -- to make the world a safer place. that's the value of performance. northrop grumman. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me.

that to china or something. >> you know, the vice presidential candidate traditionally plays the role of the attack dog. do you think that's what joe biden was doing right there? >> yeah. and joe biden sort of louse an entree into the obama campaign into a group they're most concerned about, which is blue-collar workers, reagan democrats, people in the industrial midwest. so i think biden sort of does a good job at outreaching to those types of people. it should be said, in the past couple of days, though, obama himself has not been too hesitant in criticizing mitt romney aside from those 90 minutes when they were on the debate stage together. but i think obama is also kind of playing the role of the attack dog over the past few days, at least. >> erin, congressman ryan has a full schedule of campaign events in the days proceeding the event. vice president biden, as you have been saying, has been hunkering down to prepare. what does that say about the confidence level in the final days before the debate. given all the criticism that people received, people accusing him of not being pr

's a preview of the presidential debate. because joe biden now, because of the way that barack obama failed by being too passive, biden is going to have to be aggressive in this debate. that's not an easy thing to capitol hill bright. you cato calibrate. you can go overboard. he's opposing a young, earnest guy, so it's not an easy thing to do. biden has been through this many times. paul ryan has never been on a stage this large. and i remember during the convention, in the first 10 minutes of his convention speech, he was really nervous. so you know -- it's not sure how this will come out. >> sarah palin had never been on a national stage when she debated joe biden and the consensus is she had a draw. joe biden i think has had a long, distinguished career, but he's become a little rusty and a little excitable on the campaign trail. >> schieffer: what do you think paul ryan has to do here? i'm sure no one would advise him to take the tack that sarah palin did, because while she caused a lot of talk, i think in the end, she was not a plus for that campaign. you may disagree, but-- >> she fou

was smart not to do that -- he wants to look presidential. he doesn't want his fingerprints on petty and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president and it reduces him from the presidential level. and it makes him look petty and it makes hymn him look not like his greatest asset is that people say he's a nice guy who has been doing his best. he gets into that mode and he risks his most priceless asset. but brit hume's point. he has a tough, almost impossible record to defend, i mean, in terms of was it a good economy? it's been the worst economy we have had in the lifetime of most american and it is numbers are there. so how does he defend it if romney keeps smiling and going after him? >> greta: he has to communicate to the voters and talk to them. i think that's his strength. >> what does he communicate? he can get the crowdsil. he has to be able -- >> greta: he has a
